Laguna Studio Mission Statement:

LAGUNA STUDIO is a sweaty little recording shop in Austin, Texas. We have fun when we record and it always sounds good. We are currently using a Otari MX5050 1/2″ 8 track for all of the recordings. We have digital capabilities but you should probably go somewhere else if you want to record that way. We also offer licensing, music consulting, custom music creation and sound design for advertising, film, television, video games and radio.

Bands recorded at LAGUNA: Finally Punk, John Wesley Coleman, Followed By Static, Christian Bland & The Revelators w/ (Lee Blackwell), The UFO Club, Cry Blood Apache, Bang Bang Theodores, Shapes Have Fangs, Rayon Beach, Holy Wave, Total Abuse, The Zoltares, Flesh Lights, Elvis, The Fabulous Breadwinners, Woven Bones, Datura 5 and Hatchet Wound.

Visit them on Myspace as well.
